After rejecting two petitions for voluntary discipline, the Georgia Supreme Court disbarred an attorney for misconduct in her own personal injury case.
The attorney was injured in a 2003 accident. She filed a pro se claim. At the trial, she offered into evidence two false documents. While admitting in the petitions for voluntary discipline that the documents were fabricated, she denied creating the documents.
The attorney had refused to testify in the bar proceedings. The special master found that she had either created or caused to be created the false documents and lied about it. (Mike Frisch)
